Just a initial design I drew. I need to change some things but I personally like the way it turned out. 1) Any thoughts appreciated. 2) Which color scheme is the best?





Thanks.

Yea, I know what you are saying. The UN and ordinary aren't very uniform. I still am testing though so I'm not sure if I want the design to be more or less uniform. but thanks for quick feedback. I'm just trying to target trendy young adults. I get some inspiration for my tees from Mishka because they are a company that has a unique style different than most streetwear brands. For example they have an eyeball as their logo.

Thankyou for the feedback! Ill definitely get to blogging more in the next few weeks. When the next t-shirt drops.

For a unordinary brand you wouldn't want a orginary font. Hand drawn is fine in my opinion

I like this colorway the best. As for the hand drawn aspect, I think it looks really cool. The only thing I would consider changing is the "ordinary" and make the letters somewhat the same height.

Looks so rushed and uninspired to me. Looks like you used a walcom and drew that up in Photoshop in 5 minutes.
I guess the concept is okay, but it definitely needs a lot of reworking. I can't see this being a finalized design.

Yo this is mad dope...how do you print on your leather labels though


Thanks man. Always hyped on the positive support.

They are actually burnt (stamped) into the leather. I got your PM, hit you back in a few...

UN ordinary font looks pretty cool.

would look good as a logo somewhere..or incorporated somehow into a design..but i dont think its strong enough to stand alone on a tee.

Unordinary is a cool brand name in my opinion, BUT if I were you, there's a million other ways to say unordinary, or you could simply create a brand name that is.... not ordinary.

I agree with Vega. Check out stussy's font, it's a good example of a REALLY unique font (I've never seen another like it used in the streetwear industry).

Heres my logo for my line Bryan Lank its a urban preppy line.


Heres a model in a cardigan sweater


NICE LOGO. But the font itself doesn't say "preppy". I see you have a TM next to it. Did you really trademark it? If not I would probably use a less urban font since your logo alreayd ha a urban feel to it. You would want to create the prep side with the font IMO.

By the way where did you get the cardigans?
I have had the hardest time finding a good cardigan and I don't want to use Jerzees cardigans when I do my stitch stuff.

The paperwork for the trademark is filed but it take the patent office like a year to process the font has to change i through it together for my lawyer. I need to either custom design one or find one the fits. Im gearing the line to be in a class with polo, lacoste, and burberry. The cardigans come from japan but i have a distributor for the company in miami so i got through him I have several styles and colors.

Buttons are sick. I'll be lookin' out for DL in the future.

Did you design your logo / design in-house, or did you outsource?

Just wondering.

also interested in the cardigans...

anyhow, you may want to reconsider your font choice...better off getting/making a custom one since:
http://www.dafont.com/bomb-font.font
a) it's open to the public to use
b) it's only allowed for personal use only

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I've decided that I want to lean more on to the graphic hand-drawn non-uniform side of design. Also about the stussy font; I agree it is very unique and I love that brand but for some reason some aspects of the font are too "intense". I feel that for someone new to the brand, its hard to come to a realization that the logo stands for "Stussy" but I guess there's no need since there at the stage where people buy shirts to wear their logo haha!

Also; to add a note; the UN ordinary is going to be a design, not a logo, for my logo I definitely will incorporate a fully uniform distinct image. And of course, I still need to add a graphic design or something because having just unordinary won't sell especially when I'm an unknown brand.

About the sloppiness and non-uniformity of my design: I personally just like designs like this:

and this:


As opposed to this:

or


Also about the stussy weird unique font: I just did a trial


Thanks for your feedback everybody!! Really do appreciate it. If you wanna check out my latest designs you can head over to www.facebook.com/ezpz.co ||| It would mean a lot if you dropped a like and + im giving away free shit of designs that I make here and there. There's no downfall :p

I like the eye design, I think it would look sick if you embroidered that onto a shirt or something instead of screen print but it still looks unique! blushing

Just a quick bit about me. I am a freelance graphic designer based out of Jersey City. I am a designer by trade but wanted to make items for sale in hope that others would appreciate the effort and attention to detail that went into creating them. Each and every t-shirt is designed/printed in my apartment with custom hang-tags, while the hats have been sourced and manufactured by companies that are proud to support products being made in the USA.

Keep you posted when the site launches!

Some info on that, some people get confused with the difference.

When can I use the ®

Many people are confused on this subject and use "TM" or “®” incorrectly with their brand or logo.

When you use your trademark, logo or brand you can claim rights to it and you may use the “TM” (trademark) or “SM” (service mark) designation to alert the world to your claim of ownership of the brand. You may do so whether you have filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

However, you may only use the federal registration symbol “®” after the USPTO actually registers a mark, and not while an application is pending.
